Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) Report
What Happened Last Year
I have submitted the following document to the Village Solicitor since I don't know where else to send it.
Concerning Mayor Ellington :
He was involved in the issuance of the Ramification letter of August 11th, 2008 which by some definitions can be regarded as Electoral Fraud.*
His has given the public mis-information concerning the Village debt that he certainly must have known this information to be false.
He has endorsed the debt defined in detail in the August 11th, 2008 ramifications letter that he had to know was not true. The primary example was the Rumpke debt ot $600,000.00 when we had no debt what so ever due to the fact that the remainder of the existing contract debt was covered until October of this year by an existing levy.
How he appointed the Administrator position by a method that has all the earmarks of Cronyism.
Mr. Ellington should:
1 - Be immediately removed from his position as Mayor.
2 - The Village should apologize to all residents for allowing these activities to go without remedy for such a long time.
John M Toren
* "Although technically the term 'electoral fraud' covers only those acts which are specifically illegal, the term is sometimes used to describe acts which, although legal, are considered to be morally unacceptable, outside the spirit of electoral laws or in violation of the principles of democracy."
I first print a copy of the document. I then sign the document and place it in an envelope and seal it,
If I am going to take the letter over to 44 W Main I just write the name of the recipient and "from John Toren" on the front of the envelope. I then go over to the Administration building, give the letter to Juli Wartman, and ask her to see that the recipient gets the letter.
If I am going to send the letter by regular mail then I address the envelope, put a stamp on it and drop it off at the Amelia Post Office.
The Administration Building is at 44 W. Main Street, Amelia Ohio, 45102
The proper address for the Village Solicitor is:
Laura A. Abrams, Esq.
Sirkin, Pinales & Schwartz LLP
105 West Fourth Street
Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
